Hearing Is Believing

Well, I had an OB appointment this morning and got to hear the heartbeat for the first time. The nurse found it easily and it was in the upper 150's! (I have no clue what Caroline and Bryce's were at any point in my pregnancy - except they were heathy - so don't ask, I'm bad at keeping track of that kind of stuff.) So another nervewracking thing is done! I get nervous before the first ultrasound and then before they try to find the heartbeat for the first time w/ the doppler.

But all is well and I'll go back in 4 weeks. Still trying to decide whether or not to do the triple screen or not. I waived it with Caroline and Bryce's pregnancy but can't decide this time for some reason. And at that appointment, they'll be giving me my paperwork to schedule my antatomy ultrasound (aka the one where we hope to find out the gender!) for sometime between 18-20 weeks. Can you believe it? This pregnancy is really starting to FLY!

It is flying by! I was looking at my pics from this passed year and I was shocked to see how much C & B have changed since I've gotten back. craziness!
PS- just and fyi, 4 of the 10 women I know that are having babies this year are all having girls. The others have yet to find out!
